Washington talks about a "single solution" to the Sudan crisis
The US State Department spokesman, Ned Price, confirmed that the "only solution" to the crisis in Sudan is to restore the transitional government, adding, "We are working on several fronts to see a solution to the crisis."
Price, who was speaking at a press conference on Monday, stressed that "the minimum in Sudan is a return to the transitional process and a civilian-led government, and there is no ambiguity in the position of the Sudanese people, as well as no ambiguity in the position of the United States."
He also said that the United States will continue to work with Sudan, Egypt and Ethiopia to find a just solution to the Renaissance Dam crisis.
At the conference, Price said that "human rights in Egypt were discussed during the current US-Egypt strategic dialogue," adding, "We have previously made clear to Egyptian leaders specific steps that must be taken at the level of human rights."
"Human rights are on the agenda of the strategic dialogue, and this issue is always on the table when we talk with Egyptian officials," he added.
On Monday, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and his Egyptian counterpart, Sameh Shoukry, opened the US-Egypt Strategic Dialogue in the first bilateral dialogue held since 2015 between the two sides.
In the Ethiopia file, Price called on "all American citizens to leave Ethiopia via commercial flights," but said that "there is a chance for diplomacy to succeed in the country."
The Foreign Ministry spokesman stressed that his country would remain "actively involved in pushing all parties in Ethiopia to reach a ceasefire, deliver humanitarian aid and protect civilians."
He added, "The Special Envoy to the Horn of Africa, Jeffrey Feltman, returned to Ethiopia today from Kenya to push the Ethiopian parties to reach a ceasefire and to resolve the dispute peacefully in cooperation with the representative of the African Union."
